NASA's Langley Research Center will be the setting for a May 17-19, 2001 General Aviation Research Symposium. Langley and the NASA Space Grant/EPSCoR Aeronautics Working Group will Serve as organizing co-sponsors in an effort to leverage resources among university, industry, and NASA researchers that will enhance research and development in Center program areas. The Aerostates Space States Association is an endorsing sponsor.

Particular invitation is extended to universities involved with the Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) and the National Space Grant Aeronautics Working Group. Please pass this notice on to individuals in your state/organization which may be interested.

1. Provide symposium participants with insight into current and future Center research needs.
2. Identify and cultivate commonalities among Langley Research Center competency areas and symposium participants.
3. Develop on-going collaborative research efforts.

Expected Attendees:
1. University faculty and students with Center related research interests and resources.
2. Industry representatives that seek collaborations with academic or federal researchers.
3. NASA Langley personnel seeking to leverage labor and resources that will enhance their efforts at research and development.

Hotel rooms (60) have been blocked until May 1, at the Courtyard Marriott, Newport News VA. The government rate is $84.00 per night. Please send comments/proposals for the agenda to Dr. Liz Ward (contact info listed below).

The Symposium dates overlap with the end of the NASA HQ Office of Aerospace Technology Turning Goals into Reality conference May 15-17 in Washington, DC.  Langley Research Center, located in Hampton, Virginia, is a three hour drive south of NASA Headquarters for those participants who are interested in attending both events. The meeting will begin on the evening of May 17 with an aerospace (AERONAUTICS) working group meeting on the Small Aircraft Transportation System at the hotel.
